2012 Trend: Emerald Green

A classic holiday jewel tone, it infuses both wardrobes and interiors with a dashing nobility, but it can also be casual and rustic.

Variations of this hue are sure to be popular in the next year: H&H's last 2012 Trendwatch featured Emerald Green, and at the beginning of December, the colour experts at Pantone declared Emerald as the 2013 Colour Of The Year. A Lampe Berger clochette in the luminous shade out-glamours its conventional clear-glass cousins. The Lampe would be at home in a country manor, made cosy with hand-dyed embroidered wool pillows from Judy Ross Textiles. The outdoorsy appeal of an industrial lamp, finished in glossy green, is a testament to the colour’s versatility.
